Hello, Tomcat version: 8.5.31 O/S: Windows Server 2008 R2
McAfee vulnerability checker has reported a MEDIUM level vulnerability as follows: Vulnerability: CVE-2018-8014: Apache Tomcat Vulnerability Prior To 8.5.32 [FID 23621] Apache Software Foundation reports this in annou...@tomcat.apache.org <https://lists.apache.org/list.html?annou...@tomcat.apache.org>: CVE-2018-8014 Insecure defaults for CORS filter and the only mitigation is to "Configure the filter appropriately for your environment" My question is: What if you don't have a CORS filter configured anywhere in the Tomcat and web apps associated web.xml files? It seems that if you explicitly configure a minimum filter specified in the documentation (https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.5-doc/config/filter.html#CORS_Filter) then you have to be concerned about the cors.support.credentials allowing the default of "true".
